These 40 Best Fall Dinners are sure to satisfy your cravings for cozy weather comfort food. This compilation of “stay-in” dinners make up our first ever round up entirely composed of The Modern Proper recipes! With that being said, we think we are humbly entitled to call ourselves the “no need to look anywhere else weeknight dinner blog!” We hope you'll agree.

I need to start this post off by letting you know that there are NO soups in this round-up. If you are wondering why, it’s simply because you can check out our 30 Best Soup Recipes post for all of our favorite soup recipes in one convenient place!

...but enough about soups. This post is full of hearty, family-friendly dinners, and come the fall and winter months, my favorite way to accomplish those is through the magic of the crock pot. So without further ado...
